Motion To: WHEREAS Standing Committees of Council are mandated to deliberate on the parts of the draft budget for which they have responsibility, including by hearing from public delegates; and WHEREAS it is critical that Standing Committees have the opportunity to recommend changes to the draft budget taking into account their own deliberation and the public input they receive; and WHEREAS the past practice of Council has not allowed Standing Committees to recommend increases to their respective draft budgets unless corresponding offsets were identified; and WHEREAS Members of Standing Committees are not necessarily best placed to determine how best to finance recommended budget pressures – whether through offsets elsewhere in the draft budget, use of reserves or revenue generation; and WHEREAS the Committee of the Whole, with appropriate analysis from city staff, is the appropriate body to consider recommendations from Standing Committees on any identified budget pressures; WHEREAS
